This Week in Perf


  • Posted some findings to bug 496217. Turns out we will only load the spell check dictionaries during startup if the user’s homepage or restored session contain spell check enabled inputs. I’ve posted some possible next steps in the bug, but the best solutions will likely lead to us partially forking and maintaining our own copy of Hunspell.
  • Spent some quality time with gdb and a bunch of test cases trying to catalog all the cases in which we touch NSS on the startup path for bug 441355. I’ll probably be posting those findings this weekend.

Next Steps
